Beautiful site with helpful information on signs and in the guidebook. There is an intact first floor chapel that can be seen from the ground and some very unusual features. Well worth a visit

Interesting, in places impressively ornate, ruins close to the heart of a pretty little town. An audio guide, featuring nine 'stops', is included with admission. Don't be persuaded to buy the guide book! It's an atmospheric, peaceful site. The priory shop sells mead, by the...More
